STATISTICS: FY2015: Turkish insurers maintained the SEE market "in black"

Last year, the SEE insurance market (inclusing Cyprus, Greece and Turkey) totaled about EUR 14.04 billion in GWP, 2.44% more y-o-y, according to preliminary figures centralized by xprimm.com. Of this figure, about 70% was generated by Turkish insurers, more than a quarter by Greek insurers, while the remaining five percentage points by the Cypriot market.

The aggregate regional gross written premiums portfolio consisted of 23% - life insurance, 20% - property line, 37% - motor policies and about 2.5% General TPL insurance, the remaining 16.5% being accounted by other non-life subclasses.

Per countries, the Turkish insurance sector ended 2015 with GWP of EUR 9.7 billion, 6% up y-o-y. In local currency, given the Turkish Lira depreciation throughout the year, the market dynamic seems even better, with a GWP y-o-y increase of over 19%, to TR 31.02 billion.
